Would someone feel able to add instructions on how to use github to build GHC, to the GHC Wiki? It would save folk from re-inventing the wheel.
Probably the right place is a fresh page, linked from here:
A link to the diagramatic support that github offers (mentioned on this list a couple of weeks back) would be good, as well as a "how to" guide.

| I tested this a moment ago and this works:
| git clone https://github.com/ghc/ghc.git
| cd ghc
| ./sync-all get
| You'll also want to add your fork as a remote so you can push work to it:
| git remote add tibbe git at github.com:tibbe/ghc.git
| This only adds a remote for the ghc repo, you might also want to add
| remotes for other packages you cloned, like testsuite.
| You can now push to your repo:
| git push tibbe master
| Hope this helps.
